EDIT: NEVER MIND. FOUND A SAMSUNG TS160 FOR A GOOD PRICE, SO I'M DONE. THANKS TO THOSE WHO TRIED.

I'm looking to get an inexpensive HDTV receiver for DirecTV. I'm going to D* because I've got a CRT PJ and need the VGA output (15-pin). Dish (my current/ex-provider) only has VGA on the older 6000 receiver or the new 921 HDPVR ($1000). Not gonna happen.

So, anywho, I'd love to get one for $200 or under, and $150 would be perfect. I live in Central Texas, and I was thinking of a Samsung TS160 or the Hughes HTL-HD. I'd love to get a Sony HD200 and would be willing to pay a premium for it.

Those are the three models I've been looking at on eBay, but virtually any decent receiver with a 15-pin out will do (if it's got DVI as well, that's a bonus, but my Mitsu takes DVI or component, so not a big deal).

Thanks for any help.

I have a Proscan DirecTV and OTA HDTV tuner with 15 pin VGA output I would sell for $200. It's the same as the RCA DTC100 except w/ a silver front face. It's in perfect condition and I've been using it mainly for OTA since I never got around to purchasing the oval dish to pick up HDTV. You can email me at [email protected] . Let me know if interested or if you have any questions.

EDIT: FOUND ONE. THANKS ANYHOW.

YGM, Stephen (so do you, Floyd).

EDIT: Guess I should add that I'll want VGA and at least one other output (component or DVI) so as to be able to hook up both my PJ and HDTV simultaneously. I know I'll most likely have to flip a switch on the back of the receiver to go from one source to the other, which I'm willing to do. Swapping out cables (as Stephen emailed me would be necessary with the Proscan or the DTC100) is not something I'd be willing to do.

So, how's about $215 shipped for that Zenith, Floyd
